Estradiol pills, patches or both are usually started in the mid-luteal phase. Antagonist is sometimes added after the first day of estradiol. Patient then stops antagonist and estradiol and begins stims on 3rd med free day. Cyckle will either be a ML flare or antagonist protocol. This is one variation. I hope that it helps.
